Micah is not huge on nappy rash but occasionally he does get the redness around his bum. That is why I decided to put my hand up for this Product Review opportunity offered by Nuffnang for Yumbums. Yumbums contains only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients. Formulated by a qualified naturopath, Gali Lenko, it contains no petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates or synthetic fragrances. This product is fully Australian made and owned and can be ordered online at www.yumbums.com.au (RRP $18.50).
First impression, what did I think of it? Well I opened my little Yumbums jar and let out a little giggle because the colour reminded me of Micah’s poo. I know, gross. Sorry. I couldn’t help it! It smells a little bit funny too, a bit of coconut and even a hint of caramel (I could just be imagining it!). But I suppose like most things, you should not judge a book by its cover. In this case, by its looks and smell. Once applied onto the skin, it actually smoothens out into a lovely layer of natural moisture. Not sticky, not oily. Just smooth and natural and a little bit moist. Perfect for a baby’s bum!
Yumbums can also be used for any irritated skin conditions for adults and children such as, eczema. Its ingredients are naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and extremely healing to the skin.
Therefore in my opinion, it’s good to have one of these around as a multi purpose skin balm not just for your baby and children, but for adults too! The fact that it’s made out of all natural ingredients is a bonus. There is too many products out there made out of chemicals we don’t need!
